Conceived in liberty...
...or in oppression?
Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?
New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration. If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished; if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformedand the federal government can do the reforming.
D'Souza, an Indian immigrant to this country, and proud American citizen, fears for America's future. He loves this country and fears that unless the Progressives' anti-American arguments are met forcibly and on their own terms, America will cease to be the beacon of freedom and hope that it always has been.
In America: Imagine a World without Her D'Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country. In this book, you'll learn:
- Why it is a pernicious myth that English colonists "stole" America from the Indians or that American settlers and soldiers "stole" the southwest from Mexico
- Why the descendants of slavesand the successive waves of immigrants to the United Statesare better off here than in their old countries
- How America, more than any other country, is based on rewarding the enterprise and hard-work of the common man
- How traditional American virtues sustain prosperity and freedom, and Progressive arguments about "liberation" and "justice" undercut them
- How Progressive demagoguery about "inequality" expands the power of government and its grasp on the taxpayer's wallet
- Why we should fear the Progressive agenda of "reform" which is in fact an agenda of totalitarian control of the state over the individual
- Why national decline is a choice--a choice that it is still not too late to reverse
Provocative in its analysis, stunning in its conclusions, Dinesh D'Souza's America will be the most talked about book of the year.

The idea of this book isn't that America is about to disappear any time soon, but rather that we are in the middle of a fundamental transformation so profound and severe that it changes what America is and her place in the world. Essentially, the country will have the same name, but the new management has transformed it from its traditional principles to radically new ideas completely disconnected from and antithetical to those of its founding and history. I think we can see this clearly. Of course, if you like the new ideas, you think it is a wonderful thing. If, like me, you despise the new ideas and revere the founding and traditions, you are horrified by what is taking place. But that it is taking place seems obvious and not debatable to me. How about you?
He sets up the argument that the end of American Civilization is the end of Western Civilization since Europe is already in thrall to the Left and Socialist ideals.Read more ›
Despite the temporary setbacks in the nation, given an out-of control government; profligate public expenditures with a monstrously escalating national debt; the abuses and corruption of the redistributive welfare state, maintained by an increasing tax burden on middle class Americans; and the prevailing progressive accusatory views in liberal academia, progressive Hollywood, and the popular culture -- D'Souza thinks America is still great and worth defending.
In America: Imagine a World without Her, D'Souza mounts a formidable defense of America's traditional values and debunks the progressive arguments that America is a force for inequality and injustice needing to be reformed under the aegis of an all-powerful but caring federal government.
It is ironic that it has been not only Tea Party activists, but distinguished conservative authors, including Dinesh D'Souza and the neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, who have been single out for political IRS investigations and harassment. One suspects this is for their outspoken conservative views, such as those espoused in their recent books, including this magnificent tome, America: Imagine a World without Her.Read more ›
Growing up I dreamed about coming to America. I didn't dream about coming to North Korea or Cuba.
I have always believed in American values and principles.
How is this for perspective? “America became the sole superpower only when the Soviet Union collapsed, in 1992.” That makes is the sole world leader for only two decades. “When we consider that the Roman Age lasted a thousand years, and the Ottomans and the British dominated the world for several centuries, America’s dominance seems brief, and already it is precarious.”
D’Souza the master of debate flips the progressives argument and states that “the progressives are the real thieves, in that they use the power of the state to seize the property and possessions of people who have earned them. In the name of the ordinary citizen, progressives have declared war on the wealth creators. Yet they are not on the side of the ordinary citizen, because their policies lead to stagnation, impoverishment, indebtedness, and decline – all in evidence today.”
“Both sides love America, but they love a different type of America.Read more ›
